Movie Nights


Join us for Movie Nights, a new series combining great flicks and lively conversation all from the comfort of your own home. You supply the popcorn and we’ll invite the MIT researchers who will weigh in on the movie’s subject area. After we all click PLAY at the same time, we’ll watch the movie, then re-group for more discussion.
